Comparisons

What is the difference between Strattic and standard hosting?

The main differences between Strattic and standard hosting can be broken down into three categories: security, speed, and scalability.

How does Strattic compare to static site generator tools?

Static site generator tools like Gatsby, Hugo and Jekyll have a good end product – a static site. But they are missing all the benefits of WordPress – a system that makes it a pleasure to add and edit new content, and a massive WordPress ecosystem to help you along the way.

Performance

How is a CDN more powerful with Strattic?

A CDN (Content Delivery Network) is a way to serve your site’s static assets (images, CSS, Javascript) from a location closest to your user so that the site loads faster.

Because Strattic serves a static version of your site, your whole site is served via the CDN, not just the assets.

Will Strattic increase my Google Page Speed Insights Score?

Strattic customers usually see an improvement in their Page Speed Insights (PSI) scores after migrating their websites.

However, the Page Speed Insights scoring system isn’t just based on speed. Waiting for blocking JavaScript and unoptimized images to load are common contributors to the scoring as well.

Security

Why is WordPress on Strattic more secure?

When running a standard WordPress site, security is always something to keep in mind. The amount of tooling needed to ward off the malicious actors is time consuming, and the battle against hackers is unending: one slip or missed security patch can spell disaster.

But when visitors are accessing a static replica of the site, hackers have nothing to breach. All the layers of vulnerabilities found in a standard WordPress installation are nonexistent in its static counterpart. They can try to brute force their way in, but on a static architecture even that won’t impact the site’s performance, and it will hum along as usual.

With static WordPress, security concerns become a thing of the past, and instead of constantly worrying about updating plugins and software, you can focus on doing your job.
